Reports are rife that Barcelona have reduced the asking price for Ivan Rakitic to €20 million as his current contract will expire in a year. Therefore, the best time to sell him will be in this calendar and not waiting for the arrival of the winter transfer window.
According to the report, he wants to remain in Spain with a possible return to former club Sevilla a seeming possibility.
However, the asking price of €20 million remains a turn-off for Sevilla, although the discussion between the player and the club have been going on smoothly. It is expected that a compromise will be reached between all parties involved as the summer transfer window approaches.
